As Phase 1 of Providence’s Southside neighborhood plan, we built a 12,000 sf outdoor performance venue and urban lawn in Trinity Square. As an extension of the Southside Cultural Center, the outdoor venue and gathering space builds community capacity by showcasing cultural performance groups with greater visibility and celebrating common space. Operable doors around the entire perimeter facilitate flexible event and performance layouts. The green corridor concept for the site plan reclaims a part of Trinity Square as a gathering place and pedestrian-centric zone.
